What do you think? Are you a fan of the Bizarre Foods TV series? Do you plan to tune in for the new season on Travel Channel?
I think it was much better when Andrew really was eating “bizarre” foods. There is nothing really bizarre about the food he eats on the newer episodes. Delicious, yes. Bizarre, no.
